2015 Outlook: Please let us know the keys about your team on offense, defense and special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?
The goal of the Trojan Football Team during the 2015 is to be competitive each week and improve throughout the season. We have a lot of inexperienced and young players that we expect will improve as the season progresses.
How well we do this season depends on staying healthy and allowing those inexperienced and young players time to develop their skills. We expect our returning players to step up and lead our team while having patience with those with less experience.
That said, those new players do have a lot of talent and if they develop quickly, they could have a very nice year within our league.
